I am looking for a few leading Internet technical experts to contribute 
their ideas for an online conference on the *use* of the Internet by the 
next White House.  What advancing Internet standards and tools should be 
considered?  What would you do if you were in charge?  What could the White 
House do to filter and respond to the millions of e-mails it receives in a 
more effective manner?  How might syndication and XML strategies be employed?

If you'd like to contribute a short essay to the event as described below, 
please drop me a note <do@publicus.net> with your suggested topic area.  -

  Democracies Online - White House 2001 Online Conference
       Envisioning the Next White House Web Site

Opens with 100 Participants

An online event through January 18, 2001 to generate ideas and exchange 
information on the next White House web site.  What should the next White 
House Web site do?  What should it look like?  How should the White House 
use online communications strategically to connect with citizens and govern?

How this facilitated and moderated online exchange will work:

1. Idea Bullets - Each participant is encouraged to share one short idea 
for the next White House web site.

2. Strategic Essays - Internet leaders and netizens are asked to contribute 
short 400-500 word essays covering a specific Internet *use* strategy the 
White House should consider. Big ideas and solid advice wanted! These 
essays should be submitted to the online event facilitator, Steven Clift 
<do@publicus.net> for review.

3. General Comments - All participants are encouraged to comment and add to 
the ideas sent to the forum. All posts will be moderated with a general 
limit of one or two posts per day per person. To keep message volume in 
check, some messages may be held one or two days.
